Here’s a story that largely went unnoticed for years but deserves attention. In 2020, a 31-year-old Muslim immigrant doctor was arrested by the FBI for plotting to become a “lone wolf” terrorist aligned with ISIS. This doctor, who entered the United States on an H-1B visa, used encrypted messaging to communicate with overseas terrorists. Initially, he had plans to rendezvous in Syria, but that was thwarted due to COVID. Later on, he arranged to meet with terrorist operatives within the U.S., which led to his arrest by the FBI.
Remarkably, this individual once held a position at the prestigious Mayo Clinic. He has recently been sentenced to 18 years in prison for his actions.
That was a close call, and it just goes to show how dangerous it is to allow these radicals into our country. They’re even disguised as doctors.
A Rochester man was sentenced today to 216 months in prison, equivalent to 18 years, followed by five years of supervised release for attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization.
According to court documents, Muhammad Masood, 31, a licensed medical doctor in Pakistan, was formerly employed as a research coordinator at a medical clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, under an H-1B visa. Between January 2020 and March 2020, Masood used an encrypted messaging application to facilitate his travel overseas to join a terrorist organization. Masood made multiple statements about his desire to join the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS), and he pledged his allegiance to the designated terrorist organization and its leader. Masood also expressed his desire to conduct “lone wolf” terrorist attacks in the United States. On Feb. 21, 2020, Masood purchased a plane ticket from Chicago, Illinois, to Amman, Jordan, and from there planned to travel to Syria. On March 16, 2020, Masood’s travel plans changed because Jordan closed its borders to incoming travel due to the coronavirus pandemic. Masood then agreed to fly from Minneapolis to Los Angeles to meet up with an individual who he believed would assist him with travel via cargo ship to deliver him to ISIS territory.
On March 19, 2020, Masood traveled from Rochester to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) to board a flight bound for Los Angeles, California. Upon arrival at MSP, Masood checked in for his flight and was subsequently arrested by the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force.
This terrorist is set to serve 18 years behind bars, which brings to mind Joe Biggs. Biggs, an Iraq War veteran and recipient of two Purple Hearts, was sentenced to 17-years in prison for the “terrorist” act of cutting a fence at the Capitol on January 6th. Biggs will serve one year less than a foreign-born Muslim convicted of plotting to join ISIS and kill innocent Americans. It’s mind-blowing how our government treats a non-violent US war vet the same as a guy plotting to team up with ISIS and murder innocent Americans. It’s truly unjust and reprehensible what our government has become.
